Birzman Travel Tool Box - Review
Yeah I never liked the packaged tool kits due to the number of different standards (e.g. bottom bracket, cranks) requiring different tools. For me I like to use a portable 3 drawer tool box like this one (http://www.sears.com/craftsman-3-drawer-plastic-metal-portable-chest-red-black/p-00965628000P). The drawers are really useful for keeping all my tools organized including smaller parts.

Emily Batty's Trek Superfly - Pietermaritzburg World Cup
Trek should let her use a frame that fits from another manufacturer and just put some Trek decals on the frame.

Cole IBEX Carbon Wheels - Review
I have always wondered why some wheel sets intended for All Mountain riding use reduced spoke counts like 24 (e.g. Easton Haven 26", Crankbrothers Iodine) or 28 instead of 32 per wheel. There is not much weight savings in reducing the spoke count and the additional spokes should make the wheel stronger.
